PREVENTING YOUTH CRIME THROUGH LEGAL INFORMATION WORKSHOPS
MAVN PROMOTE LEGAL LITERACY
KNOW, UNDERSTAND AND AWARENESS
Since teens, from the age of 12, are subject to the YCJA, MAVN offers workshops to elementary and high school students. Their belief: it is important for young people to have access to crucial information about the law, so that they can be aware of the repercussions of their actions and actions for both victims and the community.
MAVN … FOR EDUCATION AND AWARENESS.
MAVN is the alternative justice organization in the Laurentians that applies the extrajudicial and judicial sanctions provided for under the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA) from 12 to 17 years old. The BEHAVE service aims to educate, aware and inform adolescents about their rights, duties and obligations under this Act.
Using compelling visuals, a dynamic format and engaging content, these workshops make teenagers aware of the consequences of their actions under the law and lets them know what their responsibilities are as young citizens.
The 75-minute workshop covers the following topics, based on grade level:
Secondary 1: Bullying
Secondary 2: Cybercrime and Netiquette
A workshop has also been developed for Grade 6 students to address:
Offences and Their Repercussions
Youth Criminal Justice Act
Bullying and Netiquette
Rights and Responsibilities
For the 2021-2022 school year, we received financial support from the City of Saint-Jérôme Community Support Fund, which offered 50 free school-based workshops in addition to a grant from the Laurentian CISSS community through the Argenteuil Youth Table, which allowed the presentation of the free 35-class workshop in the MRC d’Argenteuil.
You can already reserve your class for the year 2021-2022 to take advantage of these workshops at a cost of $ 85 each. For schools of the Centre de services scolaire des Hautes-Laurentides, contact Marc-André Roy.
The workshops are flexible according to your needs. If a particular event has occurred in your school, MAVN is able to modify and adapt the topic of the workshop accordingly.
